Dancing with the Stars judge Len Goodman scored a bride on Sunday when he wed longtime love Sue Barrett in a surprise ceremony.
And, of course, Goodman took his bride to the dance floor after the ceremony!
Goodman, 68, and Barrett, 47, told a group of 30 friends and family members that they’d be having a low-key lunch at the London dining club, Mosimann’s, on Dec. 30. But guests were shocked when a registrar arrived to make the two, who both wore blue outfits, husband and wife.
“I wanted it to be a low-key affair, so we didn’t tell anyone except my 96-year-old mum, as I didn’t want her having a heart attack with the surprise,” Goodman revealed afterwards. “I’ve had a marvelous day, and now my gorgeous Sue is the new Mrs. Goodman.”
Goodman, known for his grouchy style and feuds with such DWTS pros as Maksim Chmerkovskiy, also judges on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.
He first married in his late 20s to his then dance partner Cheryl Kingston. After they divorced, Goodman had a son with a longtime girlfriend, Lesley, and after that split, the judge went on to find love with Barrett, who is a dance teacher.
They dated 10 years before saying “I do.”
